I am thrilled to announce and celebrate our 2015 Teachers of the Year, selected at each school:
- Goochland High School: Wes Farkas
- Goochland Middle: Rhonda Kass
- Goochland Elementary: Betsy Alvis
- Byrd Elementary: Marcy Meiller
- Randolph Elementary: Kim Austin
These teachers are selected by their peers using a school-based process designed to recognize the dedication, knowledge, and skill of exemplary teaching in Goochland.
A division selection team of nine individuals, using a rubric and criteria provided by the State Program selects a division representative to advance to the State level competition. The 2015 GCPS Teacher of the Year is Wes Farkas, Health & PE teacher at Goochland High School. We are extremely proud to announce Mr. Farkas as the GCPS Teacher of the Year. He exemplifies the excellence and honor associated with both this recognition and the GCPS Core Values, in general.
After coaching the Varsity Baseball Team to an 11-0 victory over Buckingham, Mr. Farkas was able to join us last week in the school board meeting to receive his trophies and monetary award provided by the Goochland Education Foundation.
Please join me in honoring these 5 outstanding educators who sacrifice daily to pour into the lives of students and families – and their colleagues.
